3:01am
again? >> the oscar turned out to be a big night for this guy. >> who is your favorite movie star? who do you want to talk to? >> the big winners, the big speeches and hollywood highlights come flying your way. mornings are better than friends. watch this. >> you are watching "fox & friends" in the morning. thank you very much. >> thank you, superman. welcome to studio e in the heart of midtown manhattan. we thought it could be the storm of the century again. right now there is a dusting of snow outside. >> just barely. a dusting. >> let's hope it stays that way. >> there is a big part of the country that has a lot of ice and snow so our thoughts are with them. however our particular facility is up and ready. the lead story is the ukraine. putin's power grab continues and to the rescue, john kerry is going to head over there today to tell them to stop it. good luck.
3:02am
>> he's going over to kiev, the capital, which is okay right now. but this peninsula of crimea has been an area which putin said the russian-speaking people there have asked us to come in. their security was jeopardized we had no choice. we had to respond. putin did make one call. that was to china. he explained himself to china, had no interest in heeding the president of the united states who told him on friday don't go in there. europe was convinced putin wouldn't do this in defiance of the other g-7 countries. instead he did it and everyone is scratching their heads saying how did we miss this? >> despite increased efforts at reenforcement in crimea, kerry is going over, set to have discussions there. but he used bold words over the weekend, insisting that despite putin's actions, he's operating from a position of weakness. take a listen. >> let me make it clear. president putin is not
3:03am
operating from a place of strength here. president putin is using force in a completely inappropriate manner that will invite the owe -- the opprobrium of the world. the fact is he's going to lose on the international stage. >> how is he going to lose on the international stage? we know when it comes to options we're not going to do anything militarily. "the washington post" this morning -- it probably won't be delivered because there is a big storm in washington. but the headline from the editorial board from "the washington post" today is that president obama's foreign policy is based on fantasy. they say for five years president obama led a foreign policy based more on how he think the world should operate than on reality. and that's why we've heard members of this administration say this is against the rules, you can't do this, well, boo hoo, putin has been
3:04am
watching, putin has been taking names. and putin, i think crimea is phase one. he's going to go as far as he can. >> someone says there has been a build up between the missile testing, efforts to rebuilding that border post-olympics. you understand that talk is important but here's what the diplomatic and sort of economic pressure the u.s. will look to put on russia will look look. bans on visas, freezing assets, the g-8 summit in russia which met seven of the other industrialized nations tend to agree with that boycott but disagree on how much pressure should be put on russia. >> you could say it is time to put that missile defense shield back in the czech republic. >> too late. >> initial negotiations to make ukraine part of nato as well as other surrounding nations that want to be part of nato and
3:05am
russia saying you're getting too close to our borders, let's be honest. and the president of the united states would have to admit that. even secretary of state john kerry acquiesced to this notion. the mind set of set and reset a relationship has failed. the mind-set of putin, somebody hei] thought he
3:06am
for every day they stay in the crimea, add to their suspension. do something. >> and flood ukraine with economic aid and start pulling them away from russian natural gas and let you start selling our natural gatt at a price in which they can deal with that helps that economy stand on its own. >> one of the problems is if europe were to try to extract some pain from mr. putin, all those pipelines run across the ukraine -- i think there are about 10 or 11 of them, all putin would have to do is turn off the seven that go across the ukraine and i have a feeling he'd have pretty good leverage over europe in the dead of winter. >> not as much as they used to because they get so used to them trying to extract them and play that card. they're starting to look at other areas. germany and others are starting to do the same fracking we are doing.
3:07am
>> certainly it seems we're all reacting to putin at this point. we will keep you posted on that. in the meantime heather nauert. >> hope you all had a great weekend. a little cold out here. >> chilly. it's winter. >> got news to bring you. this one is coming out of south africa. that country's most anticipated murder trial of the year has started. oscar pistorius pleaded not guilty in the murder of his girlfriend. he shot and killed her on valentine's day last year. pistorius said it was an accident but prosecutors maintain it was deliberate. the case could send him to prison for at least 25 years. breaking news and sad news. the navy pilot whose jet crashed during a train exercise in nevada died in that crash. the navy isn't releasing the pilot's identity at this time, but here's what we know. the f.a. team went down
3:08am
near naval air station in fallon, east of reno. this happened yesterday. it took crews several hours to reach the remote crash site largely because of a snowstorm in the area. the aircraft is being called a total loss. more political drama taking place in washington. will disgraced i.r.s. official lois lerner testify before congress later this week. the house oversight committee darrell issa says yes, she will. listen. >> her attorney indicates now that she will testify. it's been a back and forth negotiation, but quite frankly, we believe that the evidence we've gathered causes her, in her best interest, to be summoned to testify. >> we heard that yesterday but her attorney now saying not so fast. after congressman issa's appearance on fox news sunday, lerner's attorney saying the former i.r.s. official has not waived her right to testify. she wants immunity for her role in the agency's tea party scandal. the house committee

3:11am
mcconaugh he y thank god. there was an item in the associated press, they looked at hundreds of speeches over the last 13 years, and god is the last entity to be thanked. usually they thank their agent before god. >> those they have worked with. but the almighty has come in last. >> when matthew mccona you -- when matthew mcconaugh he y thanked god, they were slow to applause. >> last night ellen degeneres did a star filled selfie.
3:12am
>> ellen at one point said if only bradley had a longer arm. you see jennifer lawrence. >> brad pitt, angelina jolie all in there. ellen was like i want to be friendly after last year was kind of hostile. >> i love ellen, but the hollywood reporter today says in their review she was a flop, it was a long, boring self-involved show. one of the most interesting thing of the show was when ellen used a pizza delivery guy that she actually uses on her show. the guy, you got to hand it to him, he's pretty none khal lent -- nonchalent about it. >> not an actor? >> no. >> hi there. good morning. >> thank you very much.

[ male announcer ] along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven o help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. chantix didn't have nicotine in it, and that was important to me.

[ male announcer ] ask your doctor if chanti is right for you. i had to qt smoking to keep up with this guy. save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance.d everybody knows that. well, did you know pinocchio was a bad motivational speaker? i look around this room and i see nothing but untapped potential. you have potential.
3:17am
you have...oh boy. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. we have to reset, reposition. i've got to be able to keep a modern military. so what we're talking about is gradually reducing our active duty strength by about 10%. i don't think that's an astoundingly large cut. >> all right. defense secretary chuck hagel hit the sunday morning talk shows saying military budget cuts absolutely necessary. with the situation unraveling in the ukraine as we speak, have those cuts and the president's foreign policy made it impossible to have a strong force in the region, any region? joining us is fox news military analyst colonel david hunt. you saw these moves. you know the president picked up the phone and told putin to do exactly what he did.
3:18am
he did it any way. how significant is that? >> when you've got russian soldiers without insignia, without unit identification, crossing an international border in the middle of europe, i'd say that's very significant. a week after the olympics, any good will we had in sochi is gone. the russian units are in the crimea and the next step would be going farther in the ukraine which we don't know what they're going to do. we have at this point no way to stop them. this happened in 2008 in georgia and we couldn't stop them there. we didn't. and the russian soldier stayed. to me, we've got zero options militarily, maybe a couple economic and political, which is way over my head. but the military option is off the table. >> the secretary of state says this is a position of weakness. he's essentially giving up kiev in order to take crimea because he knows he just lost an ally in the capitol building there.
3:19am
do you buy that? >> the russians -- putin has once again put a thumb in everybody's eye starting with our president of the united states who spoke to him for 90 minutes because we have nothing to stop him with. they moved divisions, army division, 20,000-plus soldiers across. they've shut down the crimea. the next step is kiev. they have economic politics to use against europe. the military option ought to stop russia doing anything. we have failed. and we continue to fail. we don't have a dog in this fight. but if we wanted to, military options have got to be off the table. >> you are very familiar with nato. what if we start giving them special status, put them on deck? what about putting the missile defense shield back into european nations we took out as a good-natured
3:20am
move with outstretched hand? do those thing matter? >> yeah. if you move anything in nato, anything east, if you do anything, the thing you just described would absolutely get the russians' attention. the issue is what do they do next? phoeu -- my point here is they have made a move. we don't have much to counter it except for instances you and i discussed. >> colonel, always great to talk to you. talk to you soon. >> you bet. >> he is up early to explain what our options are and it's not many. >> israel, why one country wiped them off its flight map. ♪ ♪ ♪ there's this kid.

3:37am
stoned and still have a great state or great nation? the world is pretty dangerous, very competitive. i think we need to stay alert if not 24 hours a day, more than some of the pot heads might be able to put together. >> california voted to legalize pot in 1996 but only for medical use. remember this dog caesar? he was on our dog last week. he is the first military veteran dog to be adopted by the nypd. now his former handler, an army vet, wants to reunite with the dog. he says he spotted the pooch's picture and immediately recognized the dog. according to conley, he took care of him in 2012 and says he hasn't seen the dog since then and plans to contact the nypd for a reunion. those are your headlines. to get back to that california pot story, maybe they need to come here and have some quisp and pizza at 6:30 in the morning. >> let's go outside to new

3:40am
associate with wheelchairs all the time and that's what i thought when i got the diagnosis. oh my gosh, my life is over. who's going to marry me? what about my career? i wanted to start spreading the word that you can be okay and live with a chronic illness. the drugs are getting better. you know, i believe in this lifetime we're going to see a halt to the progression of the disease. to see the oral drug that are out there, the injections are what we have seen over the past few tk-bgz, and that's -- past few decades and that's a constant reminder that something is wrong with you, but to have pills to be able to take. >> how do you explain that m.s. has different reaction on different people? >> i've been doing relatively okay. my doctor tells me it is a one-third rule. one-third do okay and live a normal life. hopefully that is phaoefplt one-third have relapses and have a pretty good life and

4:08am
gleaned? why can't we bring glamour back. >> what about you? >> it's not my thing. i would be glad to do it. it's not my thing. they should try it differently. go back and you look at the original oscars, it's all about show biz and -- every line doesn't have to be a comedic line. >> no doubt. >> you get tired of it. >> let's talk about breaking news out of the ukraine. russian fighter jets twice violated ukraine's air space over the black sea during the night. according to interfacts, the news agency, says ukraine's air force scrambled an intercepter aircraft and prevented provocative action but gave no further details. there is no way we can really do anything militarily, donald trump but you know what? our president has sent all the right messages to people all
4:09am
over the world, do anything you want. we're not going to enforce anything. >> he's not a respected man. he's not a respected man. the thing i have the most concern about is that he's being so lambasted for not being respected and for being a joke that he'll do something really stupid to show that he's all man and that's a real problem because obviously if russia respected us, they wouldn't be doing what they're doing. now, very interesting, look what just happened. a few days ago, they told kerry and him, they will not go in. we will not go into ukraine. we will not do that. it will never happen. 20 minutes later, they went in. it's unbelievable. >> why? >> putin is a smart, calculating guy, we're talking about a different league of -- i don't know if it's street smarts or intelligence or whatever, but this country is being laughed
4:10am
at. >> we're trying to be friends with guys who don't want to be friends with us. >> they tell us they're not doing it. okay. and then literally 20 minutes later they go in. and they go in without their uniforms 'cause it's easier and took over. now, it's not our backyard and it is his backyard and you can make a lot of comments about what we should be doing, et cetera. but there are a lot of things we could be doing economically to russia. russia is not strong economically. we could do a lot of different things to really do numbers on them if they wanted to. they're not concerned with our leader. they really aren't. if you looked at syria or what's going on with iran, look at what's going on with iraq. i've been saying on your show for four years that iraq will be taken over by iran. that's what's happening. they're not buying weapons from iran. iraq is gone. we spent $2 trillion and thousands of lives in iraq and totally lost it. okay? iraq is just gone.
4:11am
and when you look at afghanistan, how karzai treats obama, he treats him like a child. it's unbelievable. >> remember when mitt romney said this at the foreign policy debate and was laughed at by the president. listen. >> russia indicated is a geopolitical foe. not -- >> excuse me. it's a geopolitical foe and i said in the same paragraph, and iran is the greatest national security threat we face. russia does continue to battle us in the u.n. time and time again. i have clear eyes on this. i'm not going to wear rose colored glass when it comes to russia and mr. putin. >> in the 1980s they're calling for their policy back because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> your reaction to that cavalier approach? n mitt romney was so right and nobody knew how right he was going to be and you look at obama's response and just take a look at what's going on. syria was propped up by russia.
4:12am
syria is now back in their fold 100%. that whole deal is coming to an end because russia is taking over. we're out. and i'm not saying we shouldn't be out because we've got to start rebuilding this country. we've got to rebuild our country. we're living like a third world country if you look at our roads and bridges bridges and airport. look what he did with syria and iran why russia is backing iran and bigly. it is absolutely insane what's happened to this country over the last four or five years. >> absolutely right, donald trump. >> that's not to absolve bush because he started in the case of iraq, he's the one that started the war in iraq and he's the one that did plenty of stuff. so i'm not a fan, if you want to know the truth. >> bush left in iraq, after the surge, it was ready to be turned over. we pulled out and left it naked. >> well, we're not going to stay there for the rest of our lives because we have schools, universal, brian, that have to get built.
4:13am
we have a country that has to be put back together. our country is a mess. and i say make america great again because we are not great any longer. and we have no leadership whatsoever. >> all right. he's a guy who has a mattress because people want to sleep with him, we heard earlier. donald trump. thank you very much v a great week. >> thank you very much. >> coming up straight ahead, the government just reclassified some legal guns as illegal. does that give them the right to take them away? we'll examine. >> then why did a popular tv show just take god out of the pledge of allegiance? parents will want to hear this. chances are your teens are watching it mine was earned in korea in 1953.

4:18am
connecticut had defacto registration now for close to 20 years in the state of connecticut. so essentially all they would have to do is match up the database of individuals that had their firearms registered by the january 1 deadline and then compare that to the list of individuals that did not register those firearms. if they are classified as assault weapons, they can go door to door and a lot of those folks are unsuspecting individuals. they simply do not know about the law. >> you're concerned when it comes to allegations of civil disobedience and possibly felony charges here when it comes to ownership of these. >> yes. there are some individuals out there that have stated they are choosing not to comply with the law and our hopes are that everybody remains calm in a situation because i think the last thing anybody would want is something to go wrong by standing on their principles. >> what are you saying to gun owners who may northbound this situation? what do you want to see happen on both sides?
4:19am
>> well, i think myself and the other leaders in our organization want people to make sure that they're aware, first and foremost, of the law because after the law's deadline passed, i was still receiving numerous communications from individuals that were unaware that certain magazines that they possess are now considered illegal contraband. i would hope that those individuals would be safe and remove their firearms from the state if they don't want to not comply with the law. they need to do what they need to do. >> absolutely. scott wilson, thanks for being with us this morning. >> thank you for having me on. coming up, the government making emergency government easier to get. is this a good message to send to our kids? then you can share, but do it without saying a word. parents being tossed out for

obstacles. i believe it helped. >> sometimes, because they're taking out the bad with the good, it might be the only place some kids get to hear something positive about what they're doing. so why take occupant good as well? what's your take on that? >> i agree. it's tough 'cause kids want to be appreciated when they do something good and want to know and feel they did something good. what if a kid hits a game winning shot and you can't cheer the way you want to, especially if it's your kid, it's tough. definitely two fold. it depends how you look at it. >> let's talk about something that means a lot to you. this offseason you want to get people to understand the need to get a good breakfast. some people can't afford or choose not to. >> i'm here with the school breakfast initiative. it's way to build awareness around breakfast. >> are you serving us breakfast today? >> i brought you some breakfast.

honor a movie of the african-american spirit. the second time in 86 years. it's time 'cause they had a hard time getting some of the academy members watch this movie. it's time to put the dvd in, watch the movie and vote. and also, part of the success of the movie is for this young lady, lupita nyong'o, who won best supporting actress. she was largely an unknown. this is her first major motion picture and when she took the red carpet back in january at the golden globes in that stunning gown, she became hollywood's it girl. everyone took notes of her and she's done everything right since and listening and watching her speech last night tells you why. >> thank you to the academy for this incredible recognition. it doesn't escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else's. when i look down at the golden statue, may it remind me and

4:39am
told the court she heard blood curdling screams from a woman, then followed by shots. pistorius says her death was an accident and that he thought she was an intruder. prosecutors say the shooting was deliberate. that case could send him to prison for at least 25 years. we'll keep watching this throughout the morning. the morning after pill just got a whole lot easier to buy. the f.d.a. is saying that a generic version of the emergency contraceptive plan b pill can be sold over the counter without proof of age or even a prescription. the pill boxes must have a label stating that they're for use by women age 17 and up. why did a popular television show just say take god out of the pledge of allegiance? listen to this. one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. >> it's called star crossed.

4:41am
locally higher amounts and that is a big concern on the roadways early this morning. winter storm warnings in effect from missouri to parts of southern new jersey. so those are the hardest hit areas. that's where we're looking at possibly more than six inches of snow. up to a foot in some of the higher elevations of the appalachian. you can see a little in tennessee, western north carolina, more than a quarters inch of ice. temperature wise behind the storm, very cold. 18 below zero is what it feels like in chicago. 15 below in kansas city. even into texas. take a look at dallas. currents windchill, just 1 degree. let's head back inside. >> thank you very much. straight ahead, need an honest answer? the best time of day to get truth from someone. we think it's the morning. >> and it's our top story. the developing situation in ukraine. the president and john kerry issuing strong warnings to russia, but is putin hearing them? >> illinois congressman adam

4:49am
because at some point they can come in and say, and they didn't know it would be 2014, that they can use the excuse of coming in to protect native russian speakers as the excuse for invasion of the ukraine. this is going to get worse before it gets better. we have to be in this for the long haul. we have to make russia a pariah state. >> we'll see what our president does. so far it hasn't been much. thank you very much. >> good to be here. straight ahead, he's the king of country radio and he's heard all of it from untold stories behind garth brooks' hit "friends in low places" to blake shelton. he's spilling the secrets of country music. he's on the set and he's up next. ♪ ♪ play in it. work in it. go wild in it. do everything but wrinkle in it. the perfect fitting no-iron effortless shirt in 4 styles and 31 colors and prints.

5:03am
is essentially controlled now fully by russian forces. you're seeing, however, russian separatists, we're told, pop up in the northern eastern part of the country near kiev and start these protests. we're not sure it's russian forces spurring that. but that's the concern is that president putin and his forces would expand from crimea and towards the capitol and start to take over the whole country. you mentioned secretary kerry is heading over to kiev to stand with the authorities, the new ukrainian government, the interim government there before an election is held and to send a message that putin should step down. but so far, all indications are, that's not happening. >> will that be enough? brian, you spoke with colonel hunt earlier and he painted a grim picture in terms of how much that word will actually resonate when it comes to these
5:04am
international affairs. take a listen. >> 'cause we have nothing to stop him with. they moved divisions, army divisions, 20,000-plus soldiers across, they shut down the crimea. next is kiev. they have economic power to use against europe. for the military option to stop russia doing anything, brian, we have failed. >> so go ahead. >> the colonel is right on the military front that there is really not a focus on the military side, at least according to senior officials here. but there is a lot of focus on the economic side. they're already pulling out of preliminary talks about the g8 in sochi in june. that's a big deal. the fact they got allies to not go to these preliminary set-up meetings to the g8. they're pulling back from trade discussions with russia. that's a big deal in the big picture. the russian economy is not cooking with steam. it's actually fairly vulnerable.
5:05am
the ruble has fallen 8 1/2% this year and it's not a great economy. so economic pressure from allies can make a difference, according to senior officials. the problem is so far, it doesn't look like even the talk of that has done that. >> the difference between georgia and here is i think that the administration was kind of caught by surprise that they went in there and there was a very vociferous leader, he was almost taunting the russians. we're seen like standing by. this time, president obamas was on the clear, he made it clear, don't go in, don't go in, and they went in anyway. this was forecastable and preventible if they wanted it to be. >> yeah. that's the other interesting side of this is that the president's warnings, the direct warning not to go in, the president's admonition in the
5:06am
briefing room on friday, and then the bold, going to the russian parliament directly to ask for military intervention publicly and then getting approval and then going forward over the weekend. you know, it kind of in your face crossing this newest red line by president obama. that is the thing that is most -- i guess the boldest action by putin. but to be expected if you look at his past and how he's operated, especially with president obama. i think senior officials believe that the economic pressures can make a difference. they think thank -- angela merkel provided an offchance for putin. they're watching whether this expands to other parts of ukraine and they may see it. i'm not standing in fronts of a blue screen. >> where is the capitol? >> this is a snow squall and there is the capitol dome behind
5:07am
there. >> you can't see it. >> you took our snow. >> listen, speaking of snow jobs, lois lerner went up on capitol hill. she read a statement and took the fifth. we heard yesterday from darrell issa that he had been talking to her attorney and she was going to speak. and this was the sound bite from fox news sunday. watch. >> her attorney indicates now that she will testify. there has been a back and forth negotiation, but quite frankly, we believe that the evidence we've gathered causes her in her best interest, to be somewhat -- >> lois lerner, former irs official, who took the fifth last may, will testify before your committee? >> according to her attorney. >> this will be on wednesday? >> on wednesday. >> the attorney then speaks out and says, i do not know why chairman issa said that? he just goes on to say they never had a deal like that and that's essentially it. so what do you hear behind closed doors?
5:08am
>> this is really interesting because the committee believes that they had her on track to testify wednesday. so when this statement came out from her attorney, the people on the committee were a little confused as well. so i think there is some figuring out to do in the next couple of days. obviously they don't want to have her come up to capitol hill and spend the day saying -- pleading the fifth all day again. but it's not just the snow storm that is screwing things up here. they don't know what's going on with this testimony. >> clearly it was not in play. >> clearly there must be some sort of documentation on behalf of the lawyers. so don't be surprised if we see that in the next couple of days. we know you got a busy ten hours to prepare for your show there in snowville. >> see you guys. have fun with larry and maybe he can put his shirt on. >> we're hoping.
5:09am

5:10am
the first witness, one of his neighbors, says she heard blood curdling screams from a woman, then followed by shots. pistorius claims it was an accident and that he thought she was an intruder. prosecutors say that the shooting was deliberate. the case could send him to prison for at least 25 years. we'll keep watching this story. also breaking news overnight, and sad news, the navy pilot whose jet crashed during a training exercise in nevada died in that crash. the navy isn't releasing the pilot's identity at this time. we do know this, the f-18 went down near the naval air station in fallon, nevada, just east of reno yesterday. it took rescue crews several hours to reach the remote crash site largely because of a snow storm there. that aircraft is now being called a total loss. our thoughts and prayers go out to that pilot's family this morning. drama, tragedy, comedy. all on display at the oscars last night. there were a loft surprises. the best picture went to the

5:12am
>> wow. "gravity" pulled in the most oscars with seven of them, including best director and also fan favorite, "frozen," won best animated film. those are your headlines. how about that matthew mcconaughey? >> i want to thank god 'cause that's who i look up to. >> you don't hear that from celebrities. >> a dozen minutes after the top of the hour on this kind of snowy monday in washington. rather drizzly here. many blame new york's governor cuomo for killing jobs. so why are a group of conservatives calling themselves republicans for cuomo. he says they're sell out. >> and one reporter getting a little too close to the story. stuck on the side of the road during the sochi olympics. see what happens next captain obvious: i'm in a hotel.

we know what it means to serve. new york is the financial capitol of the united states. why is it losing money and so many jobs at an alarming rate? talking $45 billion over the last ten years. many blame democratic governor como. his taxes and an increase in state spending. so then why are a group of conservatives calling themselves republicans for cuomo still lending their support to him? here to explain, charles gasparino. there are some democrats that -- is andrew como a typical lib vertebral democrat? >> he's in the sense he talks about the wealthy. when you cut down his rhetoric, look at what new york is is, ths
5:17am
is the home of liberalism. he hasn't changed that. he doesn't allow fracking upstate which would alleviate the unemployment problem up there. this guy is allowing bill de blasio, the mayor of new york to essentially end charter schools, ends expansion of them. not even saying anything about it. yet you have a group of republicans, people who call themselves republicans, led by the founder of home depot, saying that conservatives and republicans should vote for this guy. and what i've been reporting and writing is that if we should support him, they shouldn't sell out so cheap. kind of like stockholm syndrome. they're stuck in new york and somehow think cuomo is their savior. >> remember what he said conservatives, there is really no place for you here. those who believe what conservatives believe. let's look at sop of the stats here. we have a tax rate at 8.82% tax rate statewide. it's the eighth highest among
5:18am
states. by the way, many states don't have any. 136.3 billion in spending for 2014. that's up almost 2%. >> right. we should point out, the leader of this group, i believe, he is -- he basically lives in new york, but also, i think he is domiciled in florida where they don't have an income tax. >> that's him. >> why should someone in kansas care about this story? these guys are basically creating the groundwork for andrew cuomo if he runs for president in 2016. there is still an open question to whether hillary clinton runs. if she doesn't, this guy becomes the odds on favorite and these guys provide the names, connections, background, to help him run for president. there is two ways to look at it, to be duped or getting kick back

5:25am
this material and we have yet to find out. there is policy in place that gives teachers all of that right and all of that choice. however, when a parent comes to that teacher or the school to voice a concern of the appropriateness of that content, we are not welcomed, unfortunately. >> you were met with opposition, but i know you have some support behind you. how are you finding those numbers of parents behind you supporting you? >> well, another element of this is that parents, unfortunately, are not aware of the content until right before they get ready to read the book in class. so that's been one of the issues is full disclosure of that content. when parents became aware due to our research and our stepping out with the concerns, many parents joined us and have signed petitions, written letters to the board of education, expressed their concerns to the school and the administrators as well.

>> up to this point, you had to find out from a friend that this material was explicit, that they were talking about rape and torture, abortion, prostitution, to a high schooler. now it seems as though you made some headline. will there be an opt in or out? what did they decide? >> they've decided to continue things just the way they have been, which is not equal educational services and that's been part of the issue. unfortunately, no changes have been made. we fought for full disclosure to parents of the book content. we fought for an equal educational service offered. choice options given instead of feeling separated and excluded from the classroom and inclusive type option which would choose between two books and have literature circles in the room so that everyone could be included into the classroom setting. >> do you feel as though parents -- if kids choose not to read material that's explicit by definition here, do you believe
5:27am
that they are punished? >> they are. and i believe even the students especially feel that. it's very difficult for those students to speak out because we've taught them to be respectful of the teachers and of adults and elders in their lives. however, that is the reality of the situation. they feel punished for choosing these alternate option because they are excluded and separated from the classroom. teacher instruction, class discussion, all of those things. >> absolutely. we thank you for keeping up the good fight, looking out for the kids and being with us today. >> thank you, elisabeth, for having me. >> you got it. next up, the u.s. sends afghanistan billions in aid. but that's not stopping president karzai from trash talking the u.s. forget that oscar selfy. we're blowing up twitter with larry the cable guy shots. he joins us to break down his favorite moments from last night

>> demonstrating -- hitting us. >> did you see that? your shot of the morning. fox philadelphia reporter, steve, nearly gets knocked down by a wave of snow on live tv. he was broadcasting live on wtxf talking about all the stopping out there when a speeding plow truck sprayed with snow, but like a pro, he just kept on going. >> wow. >> that's impresssive 'cause that's a lot of salt, ice, snow mix. he's tough. >> do you think it was done on purpose? like he coordinated with him? you used to work a plow, right? can you direct the plow into somebody? yes. 'cause the other guy came by first, he was able to go straight ahead. >> i mainly worked with dirt. >> oh, okay. maria molina has worked a plow before. do you think they directed that plow towards him? >> are you saying they might have done that on purpose? >> that's what i'm saying.
5:33am
>> you're turning this into a little bit of a conspiracy over there. >> maybe he was just a little too close to the action. >> yeah. he was trying to report the story, which was how much snow there was on the ground, the storm system, and he got too close to the snowplow. >> has that ever happened to you? >> no, has not happened to me and of course, as you see, it would not happen to me today. >> no, it wouldn't. >> our storm system has stayed to the south of new york city. it did produce a little snow earlier this morning, but that is over and done with. it's to the south, across parts of maryland, parts of virginia and west virginia that we do have that snow coming down and actually even as far west as sections of southern missouri and northern arkansas. winters storm warnings in effect from missouri to southern new jersey and there are some areas that could be picking up to a foot of snow. so where you have the snow coming down that, is where the storm system is quite intense. we also expect accumulations of ice to be more than a quarter of an inch in some spots.
5:34am
again, totals up to a foot in the higher elevations of the mid-atlantic and temperature wise behind the storm, it's very cold. look at chicago, cleveland, and kansas city. it is below zero there in terms of windchills and even cold down into cities like memphis and dallas. currently in dallas, it feels like zero degrees. bundle up. >> march in like a pride of lions. thank you very much. we should also point out one of our guests earlier, jerry house, was going to fly out of new york city today, but because they canceled already close to 2,000 flights, he's sticking around new york city one extra day to promote his book. >> and also to further recap the day, donald trump has the number one selling mattress. people like to sleep with him. let's talk about the oscars. >> we had a ton of recap from red carpet to award ceremony. best picture, "12 years a slave." matthew mcconaughey, "dallas buyer's club."
5:35am
cate blanchett, best supporting hack direct. and jared leto. >> and supporting actress lupita nyong'o's "12 years a slave." and what's interesting is -- we had read that the associated press looked at over the last 30 years, about 100 acceptance speeches. nobody ever thanks god. they thank their agent and publicist before god. you know what? that was before matthew mcconaughey who did just that this year. >> first off, i want to thank god 'cause that's who i look up to. he's graced my life with opportunities that i know are not of my hand on any other human hand, whatever those things are, whatever it is we look up to, whatever it is we look forward to and whoever it is we're chasing. to that i say amen. to that i say all right, all right, all right. to that i say just keep living. right? thank you. >> i think the most astounding
5:36am
thing -- >> i praise you and i am so happy to be here representing the ladies of "20 feet from stardom. ♪ i sing because i'm happy ♪ i sing because i'm free >> if you're darlene love, you can do that. that was fantastic. also, ellen degeneresw jennifere went up to accept the oscar and fell down. she had a dress problem and all sorts of things. apparently this time she actually said that she rehearsed going up some stairs. that would not be a problem, right? well, it was a problem when she got out of the car. she actually fell on the red carpet. i think -- >> she fell on a cone, it looks like. >> yes. it looks like she got caught bay
5:37am
pylon and so she took a tumble on the red carpet right there. >> i'm going down, my posse is going down with me. >> two in a row. >> and ellen degeneres poked a little fun during the opening. >> jennifer, by the way, i am not going to bring up what happened last year when you were, you know. you know the thing when you fell out of the car tonight, when you were getting out of the car? no one needs to know that. i am not going to mention that. she fell on the way out of the car. if you win tonight, i think we should bring you the oscar. >> hilarious. >> we wanted to know from you what your favorite momentser. melissa says, my favorite moment was turning it off and going to bed in the middle of the oscars.
5:38am
they were lame. >> and another said matthew mcconaughey, hands down. before last night i thought he was a wonderful actor. now i think of him as great, brave man. >> keep the facebook comments coming to us and twitter and you can e-mail us. we look at the e-mail box as does heather nauert who joins us with headlines. >> good morning. 30 minutes after the hour. and starting today, the biggest terror trial since 9-11, jury selection begins for osama bin laden's son-in-law here in new york city. the al-qaeda spokesperson is charged with conspiring to kill americans on 9-11. he is the highest ranking al-qaeda terrorist to face trial since the 9-11 attacks. we'll watch that throughout the day. the u.s. sent billions of dollars to afghanistan in aid. but that is not stopping afghan president karzai from trash talking the united states once again. karzai telling the "washington post" that he feels, quote, betrayed by the u.s. for what he
5:39am
says are insufficient efforts targeting the taliban during the war. this comes just weeks after the outgoing president released 65 suspected terrorists who had been phid to attacks on americans. he is still refuse to go sign the security deal to keep our troops in the country past the end of this year. afghanistan will elect a new president on april 5. dear climate change deniers, don't buy apple stock. the ceo says if you don't agree with the company's climate change initiative, don't buy the stock. he told shareholders that environmental initiatives are important to the company, even if they don't contribute to the company's profits. and listen to this one, too stoned to succeed. jerry brown says he's not sure if legalizing pot is a good idea. he says he's afraid the country could lose its competitive edge if everyone is high all the time. listen to this. >> the problem with anything, a certain amount is okay. but there is a tendency to go to
5:40am
extremes and all of a sudden if there is advertising and legitimacy, how many people can get stoned and still have a great state or great nation? >> good point there. california legalized pot in 1996, but only for medical use. those are your headlines. we should all -- did you share your clip? >> no. >> are you suggesting when you get potted up, you get kind of punchy? >> probably like the quisp and fought loops and a lot of stuff. >> thanks very much. coming up, chaos escalating in ukraine. is president obama regretting saying this? >> putin, in the 1980s are now calling for their foreign policy back because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> peter johnson, jr. has something to say on that next. and he's no stranger to selfies. did larry the cable guy take outwitter with his picture from
5:41am
our green room? larry is straight ahead. you're watching live -- what's he doing now? >> very nice! he just took that off the wall.
5:42am

5:44am
quick headlines. baby's got a gun. firearm fury over this picture of a six-month-old baby with a rifle. it was posted on a connecticut gun shop facebook page. the father says he set it on his daughter's car seat to test how light it was. the photo has since been taken down. and an army veteran holds a reunion with his old partner, caesar, in the new york police department's newest officer. he says he took care of him in afghanistan, but says he has not
5:45am
seen him since. he plans to contact the nypd for a reunion. steve, peter? >> thanks. a fox news alert. chaos in the ukraine. russia sending its military against the united states' advice. so does this mean mitt romney was right when he said this? >> russia indicated is a yo-yo political foe. not -- excuse me. a geopolitical foe and i said in the same paragraph, i said and iran is the greatest national security threat we face. russia does continue to battle us in the u.n. time and time again. i have clear eyes on this. i'm not going to wear rose colored glasses when it comes to russia or mr. putin. >> in the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> okay. fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. joins us live right now. peter, looks like mitt romney was right and the president was wrong. >> great "saturday night live"
5:46am
line. but now he looks like an impotent, vacillating country. the notion of the president on the phone for 90 minutes with mr. putin and this continues to take place, mr. kerry now says he's going to kiev for god knows -- who knows what, but a lot of republicans are saying we need to step it up. they're not calling for military intervention, but they are saying, listen, russia out of the g8. sochi, good-bye. asset freeze. travel visa freeze against russia. there needs to be some kind of punishment or price paid for an invasion of what used to be a sovereign country. >> sure. but if you're somebody and you're running a country around the world and you see what our president has said in the past, if you cross that red line, you're going to be in big trouble, and then somebody crosses the red line and nothing happened to him, it's like, what does our foreign policy word mean? >> you're making reference to what the president did in syria
5:47am
and it's an open invitation to sovereign disaster time after time after time. the democrats point to president bush's experience with georgia in which russia did something very similar to what they're doing now. but i think what we've seen now is a mindset of this president that, well, i can handle civil war. i can handle allegedly al-qaeda and the terroristic threat, but this is something in a geopolitical sense that hasn't occurred in his own mind, based on that debate that, could ever actually happen. and now he's trying to deal with it in this kind of flailing way. republicans are saying, listen, we've got ten different alternatives. pick one so we appear to be act not guilty a strong forthright way. america is kind of waiting to act and the world is waiting to see what america does with regard to this incursion into
5:48am
the crimea and hopefully not into the whole of ukraine. >> let's see what we do 'cause it looks like putin will do whatever he wants to. welcome back from vacation. >> thanks very much. it's 12 minutes before the top of the hour. next up, forget that oscar selfy. we're blowing up twitter with larry the cable guy's shot. he joins us live to break down his favorite moment from hollywood's biggest night with elisabeth and brian. first let's check in with martha mccallum who is going to preview what happens in 12 minutes. >> good morning to you. putin wages war in ukraine and president obama will now have to respond. so what will our president do? great line - up for you on this really important story this morning. and the epa and white house press for new regulations on oil producers. what it could mean for you in the showroom and at the pump. a baby holds an assault rifle. somewhat surprising reaction to

dad's picture when bill and i see you at the top of the hour ok, here's the way the system works. let's say you pay your guy around 2 percent to manage your money. that's not much, you think except it's 2 rcent every year. does that make a difference? search "cost of financial advisors" ouch! over time it really adds up. then go to e*trade and find out how much our advice costs. over tispoiler alert.dds up. it's low. really? yes, really. e*trade offers investmen advice and guidance from dedicated professional financial consultants. it's guidance on your terms not ours that's how our system works. e*trade. less for us, more for you. we've always been] at the forefrontumman, of advanced electronics. providing technology to get more detail... ♪ detect hiddethreats... ♪ see the whole picture... ♪ process critical information, and put it in the has of our defenders. reaching constantly evolving threatbefore they reach us.

5:54am
>> you know you got problems when you're running out of breath on a selfy. >> with "12 years a slave," i should come out with 40 years a fat guy. >> you're going to be pretty fast, i hear you have something important to tell us about racing? >> yes, i do. first of all, before i talk about that, see my hat, prisolec. you can't beat zero.com. giving away two tickets to any race you want to go to in the country. $1,000 cash, and a monster utility vehicle, a monster utility vehicle. it's unbelievable. but here is what i'm doing. i was in daytona beach. we're at the race, ryan newman is a buddy of mine. all of a sudden he started talking trash on me. so i started talking trash on him. there i am. see i'm down there in my monster utility vehicle.

5:56am
>> first i wasn't going to do it 'cause sinbad got an oscar for that. but it's going to be a great kids' movie. i'm going to film it for a month. it will be a lot of fun. that movie will start off where the last movie ended on the dvd aisle. so that's going to be -- >> what's up with jennifer lawrence falling down again? she's like the new gerald ford. that's what she is. she's gerald ford. >> what else did you like? >> it's unbelievable. i don't know, i was watching stossel, i told you. >> can you stick around? >> yeah, i'll do whatever you want. >> we'll have more with larry the cable guy. >> do you have shirts with sleeves? >> i was going to wear some today, but it's kind of cold out. there is three dogs outside stuck to hydrants. >> right back. ♪
